Border Patrol Inspector Richard Lugo was killed in an automobile accident while he and another agent were en route from Yuma, Arizona, to Andrade, California, for an assignment. One of the rear tires on their vehicle blew out, causing the vehicle to go out of control and crash into a canal.

Agent Lugo had been with the agency for nine months. He was survived by a son also named Arthur Lugo, who followed in his father's footsteps and joined the U.S. Border Patrol.

It is an Honor to see my Uncle's name and service remembered. I never got to meet him, and only know of him through stories. He was a man of impeccable character, Honor a patriotism. I was blessed to have been given his name as my middle name. Love you Tio! You would be very proud indeed of the legacy you left behind.
